With the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continuing its spread around the world, it has now been declared a pandemic by The World Health Organisation (WHO). In the workplace these events can cause absenteeism and alter patterns of operations and travel. A pandemic isn’t an isolated incident but an event that unfolds over time, sometimes spanning many months. Impacts can be minimised by establishing a plan that outlines roles, responsibilities and policies. A phased approach to this planning has been prepared, to focus on prevention, preparedness, response and recovery. Paramount to Council planning is the health and wellbeing of staff and the Belyuen Community. These are best served by continuing to follow the expert guidance from the Northern Territory Government and the Australian Government Department of Health.
